Ah, if only Charleston could claim the MoonPie as our own invention, but alas, Chattanooga gets that honor. Even so, the South is the South is the South, the MoonPie is as Southern a treat as you will find, and the MoonPie General Store is one of the best ways to get sweet on Market Street. This isn’t a snack for those who are counting the calories or courting the latest diet fad. MoonPies are all about indulging the self, kicking back on the porch late on a warm summer afternoon, popping the top on an ice-cold bottle of RC Cola ... and if you can’t do that every now and again, what’s the point?
